Last amendment date

    The Ministry of Transportation Ontario (MTO) and Ministry of Labour, Immigration, Training, and Skills Development (MLITSD), are seeking a Software as a Service (SaaS) Laboratory Information Management Solution to replace legacy information technology applications with a single integrated solution that will meet all business needs for the three essential OPS laboratories that require a laboratory information management system (LIMS) to digitize all components of laboratory operations:

    • the Engineering Materials Office (EMO) Laboratory of the Ministry of Transportation of Ontario (MTO)
    • the Radiation Protection Services (RPS) Laboratory of the Ministry of Labour, Immigration, Training and Skills Development (MLITSD) and
    • the Materials Testing Laboratory (MTL) of the Ministry of Labour, Immigration, Training and Skills Development (MLITSD).

    The multi-ministry LIMS will enable the MTO and MLITSD laboratories to modernize business processes and strengthen customer/client service. In a rapidly changing environment, laboratories require the ability to adapt their processes and workflows to meet the needs of their customers and stakeholders. The modernization will allow our laboratories to be able to be timelier and more expedient and provide data on demand.

    A modern, innovative LIMS software solution will allow the laboratories to become digital, data driven and put data at the center of decision making, will increase the efficiency and speed of government operations and decisions.

    Contract duration

    The estimated contract period will be 60 month(s).
